Kyrgyzstan

Written by Jess Dan. Posted in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan

We left you last in Astana, Kazakhstan and it has been quite some time since we last updated the blog. We are at an interesting time in the trip, well underway, but still a long way from the end and some days it can be hard to find the motivation to record the nitty gritty. But finally, here we are again.

Astana was great, we ended our stay with a few more games of ultimate and a brilliant local dish of Beshbarmak prepared by our friend Khapirat. Many of our new friends from Astana came around for lunch that day to farewell us but I think mostly to join in the Beshbarmak feast. Beshabarmak is a traditional Kazakh dish that translates literally to “five fingers” – how you are to eat it – it’s a dish of horse meat, potatoes and carrots and the fatty meat tasted just amazing.
